No, I didn't see the chief until his return from Abidjan. He had gone to Abidjan after me to make sure of this information he got from Prince Johnson. But when he got there the Coffi Cona, the defence minister, tried to say, "Where is Moses Blah who you assigned here earlier?" He went on to explain that this man, that I have been detained because whatsoever he has sent me for I was trying to have them transferred to Prince Johnson and the man said, "No, this is not the case. Moses Blah came here, he didn't have shoes to wear, I have to buy clothes for him personally." He bought a sneaker for me. He fed me with food. He said, "Well, this man that I heard from politicians that have come to say all sorts of things about you, he defended you, you were this, you were that, and he said, 'No, [indiscernible] Mr Taylor is a good man, he is not that as you heard from people.'"
So then he returned to Gborplay immediately and when he returned in the night he brought me bread, sardines. He had come along with his brother, his late brother, [indiscernible], and he brought me bread, so I began to wonder. I was in jail already, why am I being treated this way? Soon he said, "Well, chief said soon he's going to talk to you." That morning he came and he pulled me out of the cell and I went there. He told the fellows, the senior commanders around him, that they should apologise to me, everything the man said was lie. He had lied to me. He said, "You lie on you, you lie on this man. This is a man who is doing his best for us, he is going to places where I sent him and he's doing a very good job. Why do you lie?" He said, "If you lie continuous and you are lying on each other this is why Samuel Kanyon Doe is killing all the Gio and Mano, because you like to lie on each other", and he ordered everybody to apologise to me and they did apologise to me. They apologised to me.
